Le Coup
by Cal Thunder Hawk

This piece is charcoal on textured gesso masonite, 18"X24". I did it in black and white to emphasize the gray areas. Rather than making a colorful representational piece, I wanted to produce a piece that would convey a sense of the psychological state of this subject.
The textured gesso provided an excellent surface for the irregular effect that I needed, like a dark thunder cloud, in the black-gray areas.
